Down to four-handed in a $20 SNG and I am in the SB. The BB is the short stack and it is folded around to me. I have K9o and raise the BB all-in. It's not really much of a raise but I wanted to put him to a decision one out of the money. Anyway he calls with A7o and is 3-2 favorite. I get lucky, hit a 9 and knock him out. The next thing I know, he types in 'I called coz I knew you had trash. Poker Prophecy says your a fish." I've seen the ads for Poker Prophecy before but I hadn't checked it out until I was told I was databased in there. I go check it out and not only do they not have me ranked as a fish, I have a higher winning % than the guy who called me one. According to the prophecy people, I'm a pro. Obviously this is a defective product. They give your five free searches so I am going to save my other three for future loudmouths. Of course, he may have been schilling and succeeded by goading me into checking out the site.
I have never been affected by online chatter directed towards me, but I do get offended by the racist remarks and don't like it when it seems one particular player is bearing the brunt of a big flame. Other than that, people can rail away way for all I care. I'm used to people being mad at me but I empathize too much with others (ANOTHER bad lawyer trait). Hopefully, these people spend all their time trying to think of something cutting and don't have enough sense to concentrate on their game.
